Recycled Water - Gillieston Heights

Recycled Water Gillieston Heights

Delivering recycled water to Gillieston Heights from 31 May 2019

Shortly we will begin supplying recycled water from the Farley Treatment Plant to 772 homes in Gillieston Heights. These homes were fitted with dual water/recycled water systems when they were constructed, enabling them to meet BASIX requirements.

Recycled water is treated to a high level and must comply with Australian Guidelines for Water Recycling and the requirements of NSW Health. The tap fittings are generally purple, and has many uses.

It is great for flushing toilets, washing cars, watering gardens and machine washing clothes. It must not be used for drinking, cooking, bathing, or filling swimming pools.

Is your home ready? The project team are happy to answer your questions – you can email us here or use the 'Ask us a question' tab below.

    Hi there

    Sorry for the delay in providing an update for this series of planned water supply interruptions (we have done so now). The Recycled Water Network Operations Team has spent quite a lot of time over the past week planning the best way to test the water and recycled water network at Gillieston Heights, taking into account lessons during the previous shutdown (on Tuesday night/Wednesday morning) and similar network testing undertaken last week in Chisholm.

    Our aim is always to minimise the inconvenience to the community, this includes reducing the time of outages for both water and recycled water supplies, allowing sufficient time for the mains to recover operating pressure after a shutdown, and planning flushing point locations to minimise discoloured water.

    Taking all of this into consideration, we need to shutdown the RECYCLED water network (purple meter) tonight between 10pm and 4am tomorrow. There will be no interruption to your drinking water supply (standard water meter) on this occasion.

    A further update will be posted tomorrow (Friday) to confirm if the planned shutdown on Sunday night will be required.

    Please accept our apologies for any inconvenience.

    Kind regards

    The Recycled Water Team
